That, be had for several years thought of getting to visit tills portion of the State by It. 11., but he was now GO years old, nnd the probabili ty, ere a railroad Is completed lie would lo no more. Therefore as there was such a matter of so much Importance to the sovereigns of Vn.. that ho traveled over -IMf miles to speak to U or 70 voters, lie laid out to propositions, one that the Itcadjusters was so allied with the Kepuhllcaii partv.that the whole, scheme was republican 'from beginning to end. The second proposition was that Hie State debt was a llxed fset, under the Funding hill of '71. In M "'"t propnsl Hon he assumed that ho w ould certainly prove It bv Ulllv Mahone's acts; and tor two-thirds of hls time. : his text was JMahone, and the word lluiirboil J. Hour- bun t ! IJourbon!!! Had I rbnn ii the Presidential ('hair, 1,1 Congress, .Missis rdppl, and Hie old mini llniirboii, I be iran to get sorry for. Now this (ami what few Flinders were on the ground nil know It) -was all the evidence ho produced to prove his Itrst proposition, except to read a few sketches from some other parties, probably all Irresponsible Spoka well of Win. K. Ca t o, as a gen- tlciuan of honor and Intcgt ly, and finally I about half-way conclude he will vet vote for Cameron. Spoke about the manner In which Cameron congratulat ed tho authorities for removing the troops from Petersburg on a certain oj osloii when he (Harris) had operated In some way with the Federal authorities at Washington, causing their removal. Oh I how he did wish Mnhonc whs here. 1I miidi', and looked like he could swal low Mahone. lie made aome iiueer movement with his mouth. I think his Imagination nvercamn him so far Hint he forgot himself nnd thought he had Mn l.oi.e down all hot his leg-, and was making those snaps to llnlsh him. lie actually was unite lor a while and snapp ed or acted seemingly in isclous, and reminded me very much of Ma.l. Daniel when be picked up the cigar stump at llrlstol and commenced drawing as ' though he was smoking, when Kiddle i, 1s'iKer answered his iuesHon "are yon ." n Kepuhllcaii or n Democrat?" when K. replied, "I can, ill '70 you hud Hayes administration, Katun's and Fred Doug las' letters, every Federal ulllehil and every Republican enuvaer In the Statu.

Tliecirect of Hi's was nliout us good when our esteemed friend Col.

Jtradjiisled their c raammi VOLUME XVII. debts, and it wis right I llimmlit linw s'xui lenow, uor lie Hid look like a good fellow nfter he swallowed .Mahone. I believe jrahone, while, kicking around in there hollowed 'Readjusted their debts,' and the sound protruded tlirou"h the organs of Harris' speech and made his audience think it was him) you are a good Readjustee. Now I am not sure that he really had Mahone In there, but 1 could discover two things of the gen tlemen nfter his attempt, ast thought, to swullow Muhone; one was be had a llt Ui! more brains than he ntmeared to have. i.ii ' ..." . ... . at first, mid another was, he said Ma hone made t1ilnr hot where hd went. and he exclaimed twice that he was get ting very much wanned up. and stripp ed his coat oil. The first time he begged to be excused, ami very modestly laid It; down. The second time lie jerked It, oil" so quick 1 dodged. He. exclaimed "I nm getting very hot!" It may be. that jMahone was wrangling around there, or in there, pushing out thoso big drops of perspiration. I think after he got through his readjusting his Southern States Mahone laid silent n while; when Hie gentleman then led oil' to show that It was tin Impossibility to Readjust, Hie tho State, debt of Va; and why? be cause It was an open violation 'of not only the constitution of the Stale hut of HioU. S., and Hie highest court of the world bad said so, and read out lis deci sion, and it was all bosh for men to lie talking about readjusting the Stale debt, because it was seaicd and locked against us; therefore wo might Just as well be gin to make, provisions to pay because we had It to do, nnd it was toin-foolery to bo harping about readjusting II, any futther, And that the whole Readjustee party was Republican, only in another guise. About tills time Malionc began to lluttcr, mid It was aboiii tline for Har ris to conclude, anyway.- Said he, "Now fellow citizens of1 the county of Lee, vote for Daniel, the leader of our party, and upon my word, mid my word for ii, we will readjust the Debt, and the read Justing of debt, belongs to the great Democratic parly." Slemp arose and look tilings from A to Z. showing tlie injustice of the Fund ing bill of '71, Its Illegality, nnd also that Harris' argument was not, consis tent, from the fact henssured the people It was n tlxed fuel, and that there was no possible way of getting out of If, but added that ' if Daniel was elected tbe matter could be readjusted nt :(;t,000.()()t) at 8 per cent. Slmp wanted to know If a part could be repealed, why not all? Harris took strong grounds against tho extension of.tlie Jurisdiction of Magis trates to $lu(', said It was In favor of the bondholder and ngnlust the farmer. The audience was composed of farmers, and I tell you It was a dead shot on Harris, and the remark made what few Flinders that were there, "scratch where they didn't Itch." Slemp's speech was luciil, .eloquent and culling. Harris told him, "sir, 1 never want you to tell me any more sir, that your' past life has been spent between the plow handles, for I have met the best and most, eloquent men of your party, nnd you are iho slickest, and best posted man 1 have met, nnd fellow-i llir.cns, I commend him for Ids ability." The crowd was composed, ns he said, of 110 or 70 voters, out of which 1 count ed 7 Daniel votes, leaving oil' two gents from loucsvllle. l'uo V.iINO l'l lll.U O.

BRISTOL, VIRGINIA & TENNESSEE, TUESDAY . , OBITUARY Mrs. Maria "Thornton Hickman was born Aug. 1st, l;j5 in Abingdon, Vn., and died of Pulmonary ConMimption; nt her residence in (iooilson-Itrisiol, Vn. Oct. 14th 1NIS1, nt 8 o'cliM'k A.M. In nil the relations of life tlie subject Of tills notice was a most, exemplary wo man. To bee husband, she was a help meet Indeed as a mother,, she was fond and faithful ns a friend, '"true as the needle to (he polo," It has been said of her she never hatrnyed n confidence. As a member of tlie church, she was not only outwardly consistent, but the doc trines of the liible were ingrained into her soul, and made hers a sicady as well as joyful experience. Converted at. her own private home iu Joiiesville, l.ee county, Vn.. In Dec. 1H7", it is said Unit for twenty-live years this christian wo man prayed' regularly live times each day, nnd' sometimes ns often as six limes. She gave as a reason for this almost in cessant Importunity in prayer, that nothing less Ibnii this could make her equal lo her duties, mid i may add, to her KHYi:riiitji, for she had been a com parative Invalid for years. After the death of her sou, Oeorge, In May last, depleted in health, by her almost con stant attention to lilm, her friends con ceived a chance of some sort, would be helpful to her, ami so she made n visit, to her son in Lee county, hut was soon brought hack In a state of niter help lessness, from which she never recover ed. During Hie last days of her illness I visited her quite often, and to me these visits were always n benediction. She was not, simply passive under her ntllictioii, but, positively, triumphant, and often expressed herself iij raptures when a hymn w as sung or a prayer of fered, that voluined forth the sentiment of her soul. And when her hist strug gle came, with husband and children around her bedside ami a kiss injprintcd upon each, sin- resigned her spirit up to Mod, with these words upon her lips: I.hrd .lesus, receive my spirit." It is not list, much to say that "thu chamber where tliis christian met her fate was blest beyond the common walks of men quite on the verge of Heaven." Much as lier family will miss her. they have reason to he glad Hint her sull'erhigs nre over that, her warfare Is ended, nnd (hat she has entered that Presence, "where there Is fulness of Joy, and where there are pleasures foreverinore."
